O’s Notes: Solid club beats, catchy lyrics, some rap, spoken word and a lot of groove are what make producer Robert Glasper’s (keyboards) music sizzle. He surrounds himself with solid talent to arrive at yet another winner with Black Music III. Among the best tunes are “Black Super Hero” with Killer Mike, BJ The Chicago Kid and Big K.R.I.T, “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” featuring Lalah Hathaway and Common, “Forever” with PJ Morton and India Arie, “It Don’t Matter” featuring Gregory Porter and Ledisi, and “Why We Speak” featuring Q-Tip and Esperanza Spalding.
